In the fairytale Old Town of Warsaw, a diverse hotel scene and first-rate cuisine combine to make for an ideal romantic getaway – and you can now book your stay on Culture Trip.
Poland may not traditionally be top of the list for a lovers’ escape, but Warsaw has the charm to rival any other romantic European capital. Walk hand in hand through the Old Town, take a cruise along the Vistula River or savour pierogi and cocktails at a quirky Praga bar. The Polish capital has the hotels to match, with five-star opulence at the Hotel Bristol as inviting a stay as the offbeat, musical surroundings of the Chopin B&B. Here’s our pick.
Mamaison Hotel La Regina

A recent addition to Mamaison’s luxurious collection of eastern European residences, Mamaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw is technically in the New Town, but it’s right under the walls of the Old Town. You’ll feel like royalty in this hotel, because the five-star Mamaison offers sleek, modern rooms spread out across the historic Mokrowsky Palace. Treat your date to a Roman-insired spa and bath session, or enjoy a dip together in the indoor swimming pool.

The Hotel Bristol isn’t just a Luxury Collection Hotel, it’s an institution. It first opened its glamorous doors in 1901 and, somewhat miraculously, survived World War II when the rest of Warsaw was destroyed. Couples can enjoy a twin massage at the Bristol Spa, a casual coffee or wine date at the art-deco-inspired Cafe Bristol, before a romantic, candlelit dinner at Marconi Restaurant.
H15 Boutique Hotel

The perfect stay for couples in search of stylish, modern decor, H15 Boutique Hotel offers a journey into Warsaw’s turbulent history. The grand, open skylight of the lobby contrasts with the 19th-century exterior façade; the building was a meeting place for Polish independence movements before it became the Soviet embassy. The rooms and apartments are flawlessly artsy, with colourful, individual designs that are far removed from the five-star hotel’s sobering past.

This lovely art-deco hotel
is also a perfect pick for couples. The rooms are filled with 1920s vintage furniture, artwork by Polish art-deco painters Tamara de Lempicka
and Zofia Stryjeńska and a number of them offer great views of the Palace of Culture and Science, the capital’s communist landmark. You can book dinner at the exquisite Salto
for fine South American dining.

If your partner is a serious history fan, they’re bound to fall in love with the Hotel Bellotto – the ultimate Warsaw historical-romance destination. Dating back to the 16th century, it’s located in the grand Primate’s Palace, a stroll away from Warsaw Castle and many other heritage sights of the Old Town. With just 19 rooms to its name, this history-laden luxury boutique hotel makes for an intimate stay.
Nobu Hotel Warsaw | Courtesy of Nobu Hotel Warsaw / Expedia
Nobu Hotel Warsaw is one for the foodies – a sleek, luxury boutique property perhaps best known for its restaurant. Impress your date with a meal at the much sought-after Japanese restaurant, where wagyu steaks are seared before your eyes and sashimi and sushi are expertly hand sliced to taste. Retire to a deluxe room upstairs, where the decor is minimalist and equally Japanese in character.
Teatro Hotel Warsaw | Courtesy of Teatro Hotel Warsaw / Expedia
Is there anything more romantic than an evening at the theatre? That probably depends on your partner’s tastes, but if they’re a fan of art and literature, plays and performances, then a stay at the Teatro is unrivalled. This boutique hotel is inspired by Warsaw’s cultural heritage and the decor celebrates everyone from Chopin to Shakespeare. Enjoy an evening of theatre or book tickets for an opera at one of Warsaw’s many cultural institutions.

The five-star Regent Warsaw Hotel is set on the edge of Lazienki Park, a former royal garden turned public park where you can stroll past neoclassical monuments, statues, fountains and palaces. Listen to live music in the Lazienki Lounge, before enjoying a fusion of Italian and Polish cuisine at the highly rated Venti-tre restaurant. Rather uniquely, Regent Warsaw Hotel also features a rooftop apiary, where hundreds of thousands of bees produce the Lazienki Gold honey that’s served every morning at breakfast.
Raffles Europejski Warsaw

At the Europejski Grill, you can order the finest cuts of locally sourced Polish meat, while the 16-seater Humidor lounge is famed for its vast selection of cognacs. The Lourse Warszawa is an updated take on the hotel’s iconic 19th-century patisserie.
